Just thought I'd introduce myself!
My name is Erin.  I'm 29.  My husband and I have been married for three years, and together for five.  I teach middle school (because I am insane.)  I live in Maryland, and if my husband hadn't come along, I'd be a crazy cat lady.  (I only have 2 right now, but I do love them so.)   Right after we got married, I was at my highest weight of 245.  About a year and a half ago, I started working out and eating very well.  I lost 52 pounds, and got down to 193.  Excuses abound, but I'm back up to 203 right now.  My cycles range anywhere from 22 days to 40 days (crazy month, but I had a Mirena IUD at the time so it doesn't really count...) but I average about 27 days. 
I was diagnosed with PCOS four years ago, right after going off BCP (that I had been on for 9 years.)  My husband and I have been TTC for only three months so far.  I'm currently taking 1000mg of Metformin, 500mg 2x daily.
Right now I'm on day 13 of my cycle, using OPKs to try and figure out when ovulation might happen. I know they don't work for everyone that has PCOS.  I keep getting negatives, so my theory (and please correct me if I'm wrong) is that if I'm getting negatives, if I actually *do* ovulate, I'll get a positive.  Hopefully.  My CM suggests that I should ovulate within the next two days or so, temperatures haven't dropped or spiked yet... we'll see how it goes!  This month would be perfect for getting pregnant - I'd get to leave school in May and not go back again until after summer vacation next year.  That would be lovely.
Hello to all :)

With the OPK's it not that they just wont work, at all, its that you will get negatives when you are ovulating and vice versa. They just dont work. I have used a saliva fertility predictor, and it actually did work. Much cheaper than strips too.
